Samsung’s midrange devices are generally seen as some of the better phones on the market, partially due to what Samsung hides inside. To keep that going, Samsung is ready to equip the net generation of midrange devices with its newest chip, the Exynos 1380.
The Exynos 1380 brings to the table a couple of minor improvements on the overall performance.. The chip follows the 5 nm EUV process and comes with 4 Cortex-A78 and 4 Cortex-A55 cores. To pair, the 1380 incorporates an Arm Mali-G68 MP5 GPU and an AI engine that goes a little further.
According to Samsung, the new AI engine can handle more advanced language recognition specifically for voice assistants. The broader AI capabilities also expand into image recognition, enhancing the SoC’s ability to identify and process images and details. This comes as Samsung focuses more on AI-processed images.
Interestingly enough, the Exynos 1380 from Samsung can also support a camera of up to 200MP – quite the jump in megapixel count for midrange devices. With that, it can also support 4K at 30fps and utilizes USF 3.1 storage for quick saving and recall.
As a successor to the Exynos 1280, the Exynos 1380 is meant to be a midrange chip, likely used in upcoming A series devices. Last year, the Galaxy A33 found itself with the Exynos 1280, so it would be easy to assume that the upcoming Galaxy A34 would see Samsung’s newest SoC, though some regions may see the Dimensity MT6877V. The Galaxy A34 is set to come with 6Gb of RAM and 256GB expandable storage, according to the latest leaks.
